Commenting after the winners were announced, Gavin Male, Broadband Compare Managing Director enthused, "The Broadband Compare Awards have been a huge success. It is great to see some of the newer consumer brands coming to the forefront with different offerings, competitive pricing and innovative new ways of packaging their broadband products. Our panel of judges had a very tough task selecting the winners, as there are a wealth of different options out there for consumers and businesses. We urge everyone to take a couple of minutes to check their current broadband plan to ensure they are making the most of the advancements in technology and the changes in pricing. There are a lot of options out there people may be unaware of."
